Reply To: Starting my 4 day load up of ivig

My daughter says IVIG makes her feel “tingly” inside. She has always had a drastic improvement within days of receiving a loading dose of IVIG. For some people it can take longer though. It’s different for everyone.

Make sure you stay hydrated! It is probably the most important way you can help yourself. If you get dehydrated you are more likely to get a headache or other side effects. So drinks LOTS of water!

Also, you can ask to be premedicated with Benadryl and either Motrin or Tylenol.

Make sure to report back on how you are doing.
